Fright night at the movies a little too realistic
An incident at a showing of the fright flick The Conjuring conjured up some horror of its own at the Landmark Cinemas at Plaza 88 on Friday evening.
New Westminster police say a witness reported seeing a man with a gun in his waistband on the SkyTrain, and then later spotted the same man in the theatre. He told the cinema's security which called police.
All available on-duty NWPD members, the operational support team, the traffic unit and the Lower Mainland district emergency response team were called in and the theatre evacuated.
The suspect was found and searched but police did not find a gun but determined he carried a cellphone in his waistband and that had been mistaken for a gun by the witness.
